Tick, tock goes the......

Tick, tick, tick. That's one second per tick. It doesn't seem like much does it? The bad thing about it is that it constantly keeps going. On and on. Like Mother Nature's Chinese water torture device.


It's a darn funny thing isn't it? What other thing can you think of which can drag on so slowly, but whiz by so quickly it's almost like a blur? It seems like such a short amount of ticks ago that I was just a child. Sitting out on the old wooden front porch of my Grandfather's house and listening to his Kentucky influenced, Georgia Blue Grass, Back Mountain Baptist, Hoedown Revival Banjo playing and Back yard singing. Whew. Not many ticks at all.


In any case, Happy Valentine's Day to all of you out there. Hope you have many more happy ticks with your kids, your parents, and your wife or husband. Enjoy them, like the old Native American saying goes: "Nothing lasts forever, except the mountains and stones." Even those pass away after a while!

Thanks for stopping by for OWOH. Yes, time has been ticking away waaaaay to quickly for me, especially now that I have a child! I try to remember to breath and soak it all in, but...well....you know how life can be! I wish you the best!

I wish I was still a kid and sitting in the magnolia tree that used to be in my Grandma's yard. It seems everything is tooooo loud now - things seemed quieter back then. Thanks for visiting my blog for OWOH!

Hi Cherry!
Its SO TRUE how time flies by! My daughter is in utter disbelief that she is going to be 22 years old "ALREADY!" My reply to her was "There's a saying 'You're old before you know it!' and now you know why!" I remember my B.C. diagnosis LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY and thinking to myself, "I wonder how bad it will be or how long I will have to live?" Well, happily I've been in remission for SIX YEARS now - WOW! Where'd THAT TIME go?!? And, believe-you-me, I DO take time to smell the roses and take in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that God provides for us to enjoy. I do look forward to all the "happy ticks" that come my way -- your wonderful blog being one of them! :) Take good care and enjoy your day!
